A 5-0 thrashing at Pride Park has made for an intense few days on the training ground and Bowen says he and his team-mates will be looking to give themselves a kick-start at Craven Cottage.
“Last Friday wasn’t good and we all know that,” said Bowen.
“As much as we all know that it wasn’t really a 5-0 kind of game, we also know that you have nights like that in football and maybe one of those will go our way later in the season.
“For now, we have to forget about that game and get it out of our system. With that in mind it’s a good thing that we have another game a few days later and we have to use this game against Fulham to put things right.
“It won’t be easy against Fulham. We played them down there in the FA Cup last season and they were very good.
“We know what to expect from them, so we have to make sure we are on our game in order to get the three points.”
